#AskLoogs: Analysis on Cook and Lane

8/27/2013

Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation senior analyst Tom Luginbill a question about your team? Tweet it to @TomLuginbill using the hashtag #AskLoogs.

Dalvin Cook is a blend of last year’s Ryan Green at FSU and Dontre Wilson at Ohio State. Cook’s ability to play on both sides of the ball and also exclusively line up as a wide receiver give him so much value. He’s a big-play and exciting playmaker with the ball in his hands. Keep in mind he’s had to share carries with RB Joseph Yearby. He’s a player we feel could have an early role based on talent alone. Ermon Lane has a bit of a Da’Rick Rogers feel to him, only Lane will likely never weigh quite as much. The long, powerful stride, the thick upper body, the strength to break tackles and height to win jump balls in contested matchups make for a fair comparison to Rogers.
